CANADIENS27 Posted August 22, 2013 Report Share Posted August 22, 2013 Detroit improves its ability to score in the late innings with four runs in the seventh and three in eighth to take a 7-1 win over Minnesota. Torii Hunter drove in the go ahead runs after a two out rally in the seventh with a double that right fielder Chris Herman failed to track down. MIguel Cabrera was intentionally walked and Hunter would score from second on a passed ball by catcher Ryan Doumit when losing pitcher Kevin Correia failed to cover home plate. An RBI double by Victor Matinez brought home the fourth run of the inning. In the eighth, Twins second baseman Brian Dozier booted a ground ball loading the bases and Cabrera unloaded them by nailing a slider down the left field line. Minnesota got its only run in the seventh after a two out walk, a steal of second, and an RBI single. Drew Smyly got the win in relief of Anibal Sanchez with one inning of perfect relief, but would allow another stolen base, the 16th straight Detroit has allowed, the longest active streak in the majors according to STATS LLC.
